Construction formally began on the Pioneer Street Rail Overpass project on March 23, but an official groundbreaking was cancelled due to coronavirus social distancing policies. Port of Ridgefield’s CEO and Commissioners, however, commemorated the moment at the construction site holding “golden” shovels.
When completed, the rail overpass will provide safe, predictable access between Downtown and the waterfront for motorists and pedestrians. This final project phase includes an aerial span connecting the north and south approach roads built by the port in two earlier phases.
Traffic is expected to be routed onto the overpass by summer 2021. A grand opening celebration and dedication will be held at that time. For more information visit portridgefield.org.
